ANOTHER SAIL VESSEL. -- Capt. Jones having purchased the hull of the steamboat PACIFIC, has had it thoroughly overhauled and strengthened, and rigged into a Bark. Her timbers were found to be as sound as when first launched. She has the advantage of all the late improvements in rigging vessels, and her accommodations for officers and crew are not surpassed by any craft on the lakes. Capt. Jones has a large force of men at work on her, and intends having her ready for business within three weeks. Her dimensions are as follows: Length 176 feet 10 inches; breadth 27 feet; depth of hold 10 feet; and she has capacity for carrying 18,000 bushels of grain, or about 400,000 feet of lumber. The PACIFIC makes a very handsome appearance in her new character, and does credit to the energy and perseverance of her owner. -- Detroit Free Press, 15th.
